Debian The version of lpr that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 suffers from a couple of problems: * there was a race in lpr that could be exploited by users to print files they can not normally read * lpd did not check permissions of queue-files. As a result by using the -s flag it could be tricked into printing files a user can otherwise not read

The version of lpr that was distributed with Debian GNU/Linux 2.1
suffers from a couple of problems:
* there was a race in lpr that could be exploited by users to print files they
  can not normally read
* lpd did not check permissions of queue-files. As a result by using the -s
  flag it could be tricked into printing files a user can otherwise not read

This has been fixed in version 0.46-1-0slink1. We recommend you upgrade
your lpr package immediately.

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 alias slink
- --------------------------------

  This version of Debian was released only for Intel, the Motorola
  680x0, the alpha and the Sun sparc architecture.
